From the AmigaOne mailing list: In reply to a question by Paul Qureshi napisał(a), I am wondering, has Elbox said anything or contacted anyone regarding their Shark G4? They mentioned that it would be targetted at AmigaDE some time ago, and it would be up to H&P to provide WarpUP support..., Darek Dulian, Support Department at Elbox Computer answered Hi, SharkPPC+ G3/G4 in Mediator PCI together meet zico spec requirements. Changed: Minor editing.

Sorry for the bad quoting.
I wonder if a PowerMacG4 suits the zico spec. I love the Ti Powerbook.

In reply to Comment 1 (Christophe Decanini):
Well, the powerbook wouldn't, but:
Take a decent mac.
remove ATI or Geforce card.
Put in Matrox card
Put in SBLive! card
Should meet the zico spec. Have to ask the folk at Amiga.

In reply to Comment 2 (Graham):
I know how to add a Matrox and a SBLIVE to a Ti Pbook but it will be less portable. But alt least more portable then the PAWS ;)

"SharkPPC+ meets the zico specification"

Sorry if this sounds harsh, but that's a pretty typical Elbox answer ;-) It
merely says that the SharkPPC *could* run AmigaOS4.0PPC...come on, we need to hear
something *firm* here. I will buy the best G4 solution not merely theoretically
*capable* of running AmigaOS4.0PPC, but actually running it. I would be very happy
if that solution turned out to be a SharkPPC+, as I already own a Mediator.

well, amigaOS4.0 is not out yet (they don't even have started development yet?), so it's kinda hard to know if something works with it!

In reply to Comment 6 (Twice-a-Day):
According to posts here a couple of months ago, H&P have been
working away on their AmigaOS PPC for quite a long time already, (a few years?), on and off. So I'd say they've already laid the groundwork and that it's now a matter of putting it all together and sprucing it up.
However, what strikes me as I'm writing this, is that wouldn't H&P have
written their version of 4.0PPC with the phase5's PowerPC boards in mind?...
Let's not hope it will be a rushed release like OS3.9 (although I do have to say that BoingBag 3.9-1 felt a lot more professional than previous BBs, that's probably thanks to they getting English speaking people to write the English texts and not bl**dy Germans ;)).

Elbox told me that they were redesigning th shark to be AmigaONE compatible....It may be not called amigaone, but they said something "powered by AmigaDE"
